I know this is probably a stupid question but is there any way of telling Fostoria other than by the patterns.
No retreat, No surrender.

By feel - I am not joking.  But you have to handle a lot of it.

To me it has a very distinctive feel. Different from the other elegant depression glass makers.

Fostoria copied everything they liked or thought would sell, so even the pattern is not a reliable guideline....
